Continuation of the Buttercup Purse (summer project #4)

I've been playing with the buttercup purse pattern.
Here are the changes I made to it:

-added a zipper (have I blogged about how many zippers I have??)

Here's a close up:
-changed the pleats
-added a fabric button to the front
-sewed the straps on the inside instead of sewing them to the outside

There's still a pocket on the inside to hold a blackberry (or any other hand-held device).

I'm out of distilled water, so the pressing isn't perfect, but I think it turned out really cute. I'm not really a purse carrying gal (I'm more into diaper bags at the moment) I'm not sure what to do with the purses. I'll probably sell them at ridiculously reduced prices (since I am extremely particular about what I sell and these are "practice" bags) or give them out in my etsy orders to repeat customers, customers that spend more than a certain amount of money or something like that. What do you think?


  1. Janna you are so talented. It is a very cute purse. Joan

  2. Hi! I am loving all the sewing projects you have made. I just started sewing last year, I took a couple of courses, so I only have basic skills. Although, I've made several buttercup purses, I was wondering how did you attach the zipper? Did you sew it to the lining?
